Hi all! I just found this site and the reading in great. So, I decided to get all the experts advice. I will be doing my first small town festival next month. It is a street festival (one night), and they are allowing food vendors because the local restaurants cannot supply to everyone. My question.....They are expecting around 6000 people. I specialize in cooking whole pigs North Carolina style, chopping it up, and selling sandwiches and cooking BBq chicken. Is there a rule of thumb to decide on how much and how many people to plan on serving? I don't want to have a lot of waste in the end, and like I said, this will be my first event. Getting my feet wet with a small event. Thank you.
